Sept/Oct BC Home & Gardening Magazine Feature

Featured in the latest BC Home & Garden magazine is a beautiful backyard space I photographed for Designer Susan Parker of Parker House Designs Inc. This amazing space is a perfect collaboration of entertainment and gardening space for homeowner, Marianne, Dobslaw. Being that cooking and puttering in her vegetable garden is her favourite way to wind down at the end of the day, what a great thing it is to reap the rewards a garden can offer up when it comes to entertaining. Marianne knows how to do it up right and entertain her guests into the late evening with a warm fire pit to sit around. ~ Have a fantastic week and if you live in Vancouver, enjoy this ongoing 'bout of sunshine we're having! ~

Unexpected Summer Treats

Wasn't  this weekend AMAZING?  The sun was out and so was I.   What's a better way to spend time outdoors than with a few little unexpected treats to cool us down? The first is a Ginger & Lemongrass Iced Green Tea recipe that I found in an old Style At Home issue from July/2009.  This is how I want my ice tea made from now on!

Another fun thing to do with just simple pieces of water melon is to soak each piece into tequila, sprinkle some rock salt on, squeeze some lime juice all over and there you have it ~ fun, right?

Or what about this combination of cucumbers and jalapeño peppers in a popsicle?  ..... I found this recipe on The Black Peppercorn
